Experience Miami Dade College’s Cultural Affairs like never before. Start your evening with a short film presented by the Miami Film Festival before stepping into Miami Book Fair’s “Office Hours,” where you’ll be able to request a poem on demand, contribute to a group poem project yourself, and more. Continue your evening with a tour of the historic landmark Koubek Mansion, presented by the Museum of Art and Design (MOAD) and led by Miami historian Casey Piket. Then get ready to party! The Koubek Center will present an Afro-Cuban dance class which you’re invited to observe, but for the extroverts, Live Arts Miami will be hosting a rumba class, and you’ll have the opportunity to get in on the action.

Open House Miami unlocks the stories, design, architecture, and experiences that define our vibrant city – all free and open to the public! “Miami Book Fair Office Hours” showcases a sample of  the resources and programs we have to offer. Attendees can ask an oracle for astrological book recommendations, request a personalized typewritten poem on demand, add a line to an interactive “exquisite corpse” poem, take a selfie with a beloved children’s book character, and receive a free copy of this year’s featured NEA Big Read Miami title, the novel CIRCE by MADELINE MILLER, an epic adaptation of the ancient Greek enchantress who crosses paths with Zeuss, Odysseus, the Minotaur, and more. 


Presented as part of the 2024 NEA Big Read Miami.
